BUDAPEST (Reuters) – The United States will share its knowledge of risks involving Chinese telecoms equipment manufacturer Huawei with countries such as Hungary, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday during a visit to Budapest.

“If that (Huawei) equipment is co-located where we have important American systems, it makes it more difficult for us to partner alongside them,” Pompeo told journalists.
